Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming Graphics Card Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Sat, Nov 01 2014 | 5:52P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
NVIDIAs GeForce 900 Series has been a long time coming and gamers have anxiously awaited it. NVIDIA has been using the Kepler architecture for quite sometime and when Maxwell was introduced last year we only saw the entry-level and budget friendly cards. When we finally got word that we would be seeing performance segment Maxwell cards lets just say we got excited. Today we will be looking at our first review of a GeForce 900 series card and it comes in the form of the Gigabyte GeForce GTX 970 G1 Gaming. For starters the GeForce GTX 970 has 1664 CUDA cores, 104 texture units, 64 ROPs and packs 4GB of GDDR5 memory. Normally this card would have speeds of 1050 MHz core and 1178 MHz boost, but Gigabyte has overclocked their version to speeds of 1178 MHz core and 1329 MHz boost. On top of that Gigabyte has implemented their latest WindForce 3X cooler on the card to give you the best cooling possible. Lets get this card on the bench and see what it can do!"

ASRock X99 OC Formula Review SSD Performance Differs Slightly With the X99
     Sat, Nov 01 2014 | 5:23P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
If you are going to introduce a new motherboard to the world, perhaps the best marketing feat one could achieve would be to set a new overclocking world record for that board close to the time of its release. Nick Shih of ASRock did that with the new ASRock X99 OC Formula recently by overclocking the latest Intel i7-5960X chip to a previously unheard of 6620.73 MHz. This is a bold statement in the world of motherboard wars and perhaps a challenge by ASRock, to Gigabyte and Asus, to match that! But then again, maybe Nick figured he had something to prove if he was going to put his signature on this board"

Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super Jetstream review
     Sat, Nov 01 2014 | 4:19P | Video Cards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
1.html,Today we review the Palit GeForce GTX 980 Super Jetstream edition, one of the fastest GTX 980`ies on the globe. It does that while staying very silent. Heck, the cooler won`t even spin with GPU temperatures up-to roughly 65 Degrees C. The card has 4 GB graphics memory, is energy efficient and factory overclocked for you. Oh and hey, it overclocks nicely as well as we pass 1500 MHz on the GPU boost frequency."

ASRock X99 Extreme4 Review @ Vortez
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 5:23P | Motherboards | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Perhaps the key feature of the Extreme4 though is the price. When all of the above is taken into consideration you may feel deterred. You shouldnt because the main attraction here is the price. At 170 / $240 it is a decent price point and while much of the fat and glitter has been trimmed away, it is after all a solid performer, proven in our testing so if you can get along with the colour scheme and do not need the extravagances of higher end motherboards then we see no reason not to buy this product."

OCZ ARC 100 240GB SSD Review @HiTech Legion
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 12:05P | Hard Drives/SSD | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
OCZ returning to the mainstream segment is an interesting development, to say the least, and its importance should not be underestimated. One needs to keep in mind that OCZ did not drop out of the this particular segment due to their products lacking performance."

Crucial Ballistix Sport DDR4 2400MHz 32GB Memory Kit Review @ Legit Reviews
     Fri, Oct 31 2014 | 9:34A | Audio / Sound | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Crucial recently announced that they have come out with enthusiast-class Ballistic Sport DDR4 modules that offer increased bandwidth over your traditional `value series` DDR4 memory kits. The kits also look better thanks to the use of a integrated heat spreader and a black PCB instead of traditional green PCB that has been around for decades. Crucial sent over the Ballistix Sport 32GB DDR4 2400MHz desktop memory kit that is sold under part number BLS4K8G4D240FSA. This memory kit runs at 2400MHz with 16-16-16-39 2T timings at 1.20V. Read on to see how this kit performs. We don`t want to spoil too much, but let`s just say it overclocked beyond 2400MHz and we got CL12 timings with a 1T command rate with the overclock.  Could this be the DDR4 memory kit to get this fall?"
